September 7, 2013

Welcome to the home of the Great Locomotive Chase, sponsored by CSX Transportation. We promise you a day of family fun as we host our  5th Annual 5K run, 1 Mile Fun run and Tot Trot.

The fast, flat course will start at 8 a.m. at Kennesaw First Baptist Church and run up Main Street into Swift-Cantrell Park. It loops through the park on a paved path lined with trees and ends with a downhill finish in downtown Kennesaw at the intersection of Main Street and Cherokee Street, just in time for the kick-off of The Taste of Kennesaw.

The 1 Mile Fun Run will start around 7:30 a.m., also in front of Kennesaw First Baptist Church. The Tot Trot will follow around 8:45 a.m. in front of Big Shanty Barbershop.

The cost is $25 if you register by 9/6/12 and $30 the day of the race.


  • $100 top overall male and female finishers.
  • $100 top male and female masters (40 & over) finishers.
  • Medals to the top three finishers in each age division.
